The Liebster Awards! Such an honor! — April 11, 2014

The Liebster Awards! Such an honor!

On March 27, 2014, Mama Needs Mana blogger, Nerisanda nominated me and eleven other bloggers for a Liebster Award. She was also nominated by another blogger Amanda from Geekphoria. I got very happy when Neri nominated me because I have never been nominated for anything (other than doing house work…lol) in my life and I really felt that some of my twitter followers actually cared of what I wrote.


So what is a Liebster Award? Let the Liebster people explain:

“Well, it is only an AWESOME award given to up and coming bloggers. Given by other up and coming bloggers. It’s a cool way to find other blogs and feel like you are getting into the blogging stratosphere. It is simple, you get nominated by someone else, mention their page and a link to their blog in your Liebster Award Post, answer the 11 questions they give you, then tag 11 other nominees and give them a new set of 11 questions to answer.”

And now to answer the questions Neri asked me…tun, tun, tun:

What inspired you to start blogging?

Other bloggers inspired me to write about my crazy happenings in WoW and in my crazy life as a mother to teenagers. Although I don’t post much about them, they have their own little crazy stuff they put me through.

If you won a free ticket to Blizzcon, what panels would you be most excited about seeing?

Wow, if I won a free ticket to Blizzcon…I would visit all of the panels. I have wanted to go to Blizzcon for the past five or six years and I would be amazed at all the sections that I can go through in two days.

How do you balance time in-game with your ‘RL’ commitments?

Well this is pretty difficult, because now since I have a night time job I have to measure my game time carefully. My kids know not to bother me when I am playing unless it is an emergency and I am not in a dungeon or raid. My husband on the other hand doesn’t know when to bug me and doesn’t care if I am in a raid or dungeon, ‘cause he is not a gamer. But I always manage to get everything done.

If World of Warcraft shut down its servers tomorrow (Or you aren’t currently playing), what would you be playing instead?

I guess I would be playing League of Legends. It is the only other game that I enjoy playing when I am not on World of Warcraft.

Are there any bloggers out there who you aspire to be like? What is it about them that you love?

Nerisanda and Rinike are bloggers I would aspire to be like. Their blogs are awesome and I would give anything to write as well as they do. They also know what they are talking about unlike me…lol!

Are you brave enough to show us your gaming set up?

Nope! Why? Because it is a terrible mess; papers hanging from everywhere, cords, booze, and other unnecessary items hanging about.

At what age would you let your children (Real or hypothetical) start playing video games?

My son was five years old when we bought him a Sega Dreamcast, that then we upgraded to a PSOne, and then a PS2. Now he is 16 going on 17, and has his own account on WoW, League of Legends, and Xbox 360.

You have a weekend of interruption free gaming ahead of you. What essential supplies do you stock up on to get you through it?

I have to stock lots of food and water or maybe soda (who knows), a cushion for my tushy, and a good repertoire of music.

If you could pick any job in the gaming industry, what would it be?

Definitely a beta tester, I wouldn’t mind playing games while getting paid. I was always a sucker for games. You think the Dreamcast and all the other consoles were for my son? Those were for me to play all night long!

Have you ever done any gaming cosplay?


What is the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever seen done in an MMO or multi-player game?

Naked bodies all over Goldshire! That had made my day, since I was always getting ganked.    🙂

Nominations go to:

My nominations for this award go to:

Ready for your questions?

  1. If you were trapped in Azeroth, which character would you like to be?
  2. Why did you start your blog?
  3. What is/was the craziest thing you have done in your life?
  4. If you were to choose a theme to cosplay, what would it be?
  5. Have you been to Blizzcon, what was your favorite moment there?
  6. What is your favorite show?
  7. What other games do you like to play?
  8. Android or Apple? Why?
  9. What is your favorite book/book series?
  10. If you were to help someone in need, how would you help them?
  11. If you could change something about yourself, what would you change?

Good luck, have fun, and I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Almost There! — April 10, 2014

Almost There!

Hello everyone!

Hope that when you read this post, you are all doing well!

I have been a little busy putting in some game time and trying to get some good gear to end the season with in WoW! I have also downloaded a new game which is Smite and I, as of now (while writing this post), am downloading Diablo III! Also IRL stuff has been happening so I’ve been pretty busy and…….

I would like to personally thank for nominating me for a Liebster! I will be answering my own questions and nominating some peeps of my own soon, so be on the lookout!

First off, IRL stuff…I am now working five days at my husband’s job for a few hours at night. Some good money making there…lol! I get home so tired that I sometimes don’t feel like playing or doing anything at all. I have almost completed my friend’s baby her booties and I am now making the bows to tie to the front. Otherwise, I have been doing okay and trying to keep this good stuff going.

Now to talk about almost being there…My dear little hunter as you see in the previous post, is almost pretty much geared. I have been working on Raid Gear as well as Season 15 gear. It has not been easy, but the feeling of being there when Garrosh Hellscream was brought down, was so rewarding. This was my actual first time running some endgame Raids. I am pretty amazed at how difficult it was for all the other raid members to kill this guy. Hard to admit that I died twice, but still was part of an amazing team! So I joined my friend’s boyfriend guild and we are setting up some teams for raids, dungeons, and challenges. Wow, Challenge modes, I never thought that I was ever going to be ready for challenge mode with my guild!

Finally, my first Horde toon is 90! The new task will be to gear her up the same or maybe better than Martiinna! It takes a lot of patience, but since the guild I am in at this time is in hiatus…I have to search for a better guild in The Venture Co., Any ideas?

Well this is it for now, since I have so many things to do. Hopefully next blog I can talk about how it’s going on Smite and Diablo III? Of course, after the Liebster Award!
